I received two packs of dry rub to try out last month and have finally had the chance to taste them!
One package of Cinnamon Chipotle BBQ Rub from good friend Bill Mothershead at Black Eyed Pigz , and a package of Ross's Holy Smokin' Chipotle from one of my favorite people in the whole world, Ross at Grilling Smoking and Baking.
If you cut the venison hunks almost twice the thickness of the dove breasts, the meat will come out great. The dove will be cooked and the venison will be pink in the middle. (not overcooked)
These are dove from the fall hunting season .
I like to filet the meat from the breast for kabobs.
yeah... leave it to me to mix the two up, even though one contains cinnamon. lol I don't trust myself. :)
Time for the taste test.
The Cinnamon Chipotle dove and venison....
Ross' Holy Smokin Chipotle dove and venison...
Both rubs were different and both were SOOOO good! :)
I definately didn't have a favorite between the two... Bill's Cinnamon Chipotle rub and a nice cinnamon flavor but still packed a chipotle kick. You can use more or less of the rub to make it mild or hotter. I'm not a huge fan of really hot stuff (I like to still be able to taste the meat).
It was perfect in my opinion.
Ross' Holy Smokin' Chipotle rub was killer too. You can see the color of the spices in the bottom photo. I have no idea if Ross' rub is for sale yet but will find out soon.
I'd love to try it on some beef, maybe a skirt steak or brisket...
Both rubs would be great on chicken too!
I know that Bill's Cinnamon Chipotle Rub is for sale on his site..
Black Eyed Pigz .
Thank you Ross and Bill, I really enjoyed both dry rubs, they were wonderful!
